Om Nom Nom Your Way to Hong Kong!

Are you a fan of Amazing Race Asia? Have you ever dreamt of competing in a “food edition” where the Amazing Race and challenges are all based on your favourite past time – food and eating? Well imagine no more! Maxis now brings you “The Maxis Om Nom Nom Race” where we are looking for 60 bloggers to race against time to complete various food challenges all around Malaysia and win great prizes!

Date: 15 January 2011 (Saturday)
Venue: Modesto’s, Ground Floor, Capital Square, 7 Persiaran CapSquare 50100, Kuala Lumpur
Time: 8am-7pm
(all participants must register before 9am)
Dress code: customized “The Maxis Om Nom Nom Race” T-shirts will be provided (please indicate your desired size in your blog post entry)

You’ll be starting off and ending the race at Modesto’s, Capsquare, but the route that you’ll need to take on the Maxis Om Nom Nom Race will be filled with tons of other food. Tons of glorious food. *mops drool up* If the thought of Amazing Race-style challenges while savouring the best of Malaysian cuisine doesn’t get you excited yet, maybe the prizes will. Check out the amazing prizes you stand to win in the Maxis Om Nom Nom Race:

There are 2 main prizes to be won. The 2 teams who earn the most points will win the following:
1st Prize: A trip to Hong Kong 3 days 2 nights with 5-star accommodation (for the winning team members of 4 pax) worth RM10,000, and also 4x HTC Desire Z (1 per winning member)
2nd Prize: 4 x HTC 7 Mozart (1 per winning member)
All 60 participants will be rewarded with Maxis goodie bags.

    How can the Nickelodeon logo be to the Best l ist but Bing be around the worst l ist? It is like looking on the similar factor, a single is skinny plus the other is excess fat. And I am aware th is is nostalgia talking, however the new Nick logo is just poor.Out of the very best l ist, I would have put the NY Library closer to your best. It’s a stand out mark that is just sharp.
